Man Power (Hivern Discs • Correspondant • Throne of Blood)

Man Power is the production alias of UK born music maker Geoff Kirkwood. Initially conceived as an anonymous project in a bid to allow him to explore the limits of genres, the inevitable attachment of a real life identity has done nothing to stifle his dedication to bringing together disparate musical forms, to the delight of critics and fans alike.

Man Power is the production alias of UK born music maker Geoff Kirkwood. Initially conceived as an anonymous project in a bid to allow him to explore the limits of genres, the inevitable attachment of a real life identity has done nothing to stifle his dedication to bringing together disparate musical forms, to the delight of critics and fans alike.

While Man Power is now based in Mexico, holding residencies at the esteemed Topaz Deluxe in his new station of Monterrey and at the equally chic MN Roy of Mexico City, the charismatic Geordie still manages to maintain a global appeal. Featured as one of XLR8R’s best new artists of 2015, this year has seen him play live on BBC Radio 1 and at esteemed spots such as Panorama Bar and Glastonbury festival, to shows in Japan, New York, Tel Aviv and the Middle East.

Man Power’s self titled debut album on Correspondant in 2015 drew wide praise and paid heed to diverse influences including early 20th century modernism to late 20th century new wave through to experimental cinema, philosophy and poets such as ee cummings. The result was somewhat experimental and pop textured and sits comfortably with his other eminent releases on the likes of ESP Institute, Hivern Discs, Throne of Blood, Infine and Ene Japan.

Noted for his unconventional and expansive approach to musical selection and production, Man Power is expanding on the scope of his artistic manifesto on his second album. In the works for early 2016, it features a cadre of musicians from around the world and sees him developing the aesthetics of a more organic, live sound to embody the diverse energies and influences Man Power encapsulates.
